slow cooker oatmeal

This is the recipe I started with: http://www.theyummylife.com/Slow_Cooker_Apple_Cinnamon_Oatmeal

I had to cut it in half because I have a 1.5qt cooker instead of 3qts. So I omitted the apples and flaxseed (I didn't like the taste of the apples, and I didn't have flaxseed), halved the amount of oats, milk, and water, left the amount of brown sugar and cinnamon the same, and used a tablespoon or so of butter. I don't know how much salt I used, but it was likely more than called for. I found it bland otherwise. I let it cook for 8 or 9 hours, because I like it thick. Also, I wasn't up yet.

It came out more buttery than sweet, but it's really good with raisins and brown sugar. It's also good with bacon bits. I want to try it with maple-cured bacon, or regular bacon and brown sugar. I bet it would be good with scrambled eggs or cheese, too. I like the texture of the steel-cut oats a lot. And when you only use half a cup of oats at a time, it really stretches that bag of Bob's Red Mill, which is only about $2.50 in the first place.
